Days after dropping her banger ‘Break My Soul’, Beyonce finally shared the official album cover for her upcoming 7th solo studio album ‘Renaissance’. The Grammy-winning icon took to her Instagram on Thursday, June 30 to reveal the cover art along with a detailed caption hoping the fans, would “find joy in this music.”
Social media users thronged to Twitter as Queen Bey easily managed to break the Internet. The 40-year-old, on the new album cover, can be seen sitting on a holographic horse while going almost nude. A few fans suggested how Bey's cover art was similar to John Collier’s iconic 19th century painting Lady Godiva and also a photograph of Bianca Jagger on horseback at Studio 54. According to Wikipedia, Lady Godiva in Old English Godgifu was a late Anglo-Saxon noblewoman who is documented as the wife of Leofric, Earl of Mercia, and a patron of various churches and monasteries.

A place to be free of perfectionism and overthinking. A place to scream, release, feel freedom” further explaining, “It was a beautiful journey of exploration. I hope you find joy in this music.
